* At the beginning of their interstellar vacation around the time of the NOW relaunches, Johnny is seen melting one of the legs in Ben's chair. This becomes a brick joke almost a year later when Ben finally sits on it getting a 'finally' reaction out of Johnny.
* The team visits a research outpost in Antartica with everyone dreaded in heavy winter clothing. Johnny then follows them out wearing nothing but a bathing suit and sunglasses.

* An episode in the second season has a RunningGag that hangs a lampshade on [[spoiler:Johnny and Crystal's StrangledByTheRedString status]]. [[spoiler:Crystal sends out Lockjaw to guide Johnny to a secret meeting spot. [[EpicFail They never reach for it.]] [[BrickJoke Even at the end]].]]
* There's an episode in which [[spoiler: Sue not only is BrainwashedAndCrazy, but given an EvilCostumeSwitch that swears by EvilIsSexy.]] By the end, [[spoiler: when she's released and her "controller" is defeated, she's still dressed up in it, and [[CovertPervert Reed]] is VERY pleased...]]
* Doom has some surprisingly funny SophisticatedAsHell moments:
** In "A Blind Man Shall Lead Them," when he has the Four and Daredevil dead to rights
--> '''Doom:''' I've made an interesting improvement in your ventilation system. I shall now suck all the air out of the room, and like the martyrs of Masada, you may watch each other die. *{{beat}}* Have a nice day. *EvilLaugh*
** Later, when he sets the Reed's reactor in the Baxter Building to blow up half the city he exits with "What a pity, I never did get to see Theatre/{{Cats}}."
** When Ben is (seemingly) beaten to death by the Hulk and Doom congratulates him, Hulk laments making Alicia cry, to which Doom replies with an ''utterly'' disinterested "She'll get over it."
* In "When Calls Galactus", Galactus has been weakened, but both the FF and [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] are faring poorly against him. [[BigDamnHeroes All of a sudden]], ComicBook/GhostRider shows up totally out of the blue. A confused Thing then asks "Is everyone here on fire but me?" (as both Johhny and Nova are present) and "When did this become a superhero convention?"
